Making It Worse

I don't think there's a president who's been elected who wouldn't have used the magic economy wand to make the economy better.

But that wand doesn't exist.

There's precious little that the federal government can actively do to make the economy better.

But it's very easy for them to make it worse!

If congress could easily make the economy better it would have rocked from 2000-2006 and 2008-2010 when a single party was in charge of both houses and the oval office.  Not to mention 1976-1980 and 1932-1944.  If FDR couldn't manage it with TWELVE YEARS to work.  THERE.  IS.  NO.  MAGIC.  WAND.

The economy does so much better when the government boot is suddenly removed.

There's the real secret to the post-WW2 recovery.

This is something that's within Congress' power to do.
